Getting Ready Wedding Photos

Portland-Oregon-Wedding-Photographer---MPP120114Pictures of the bride and the groom getting ready for their wedding ceremony are an important and fun part of the day. Usually, the bride and groom start their day by gathering with their groomsmen or bridesmaids and parents to do hair, makeup and get into the clothing they will wear for their ceremony. There are so many great moments in this part of the day. There is usually lots of laughter, tears and some great, quiet moments that help tell the story of the interactions and mood of the people who are closest to the couple. Most of the time, the getting ready part of the day is longer than the ceremony. And, the people in the room are filled with excitement and anticipation – which makes it a great place to capture photos of honest emotions. At Lyndsey’s wedding, there were a lot of great moments. But this photo of two of her bridesmaids putting on the final touches speaks to the care and loving attention she got from all the friends and family who were there to support her. There were many moments of laughter and a few tears this day that will appear in some posts down the road. For now, I hope you enjoy this moment.
